The Dean of Students Office provides financial support to Carleton students who are experiencing a financial hardship due to an unanticipated event. (Examples for funding may include: emergency travel home, medical costs, educational costs, etc.)
To be eligible for these emergency funds, an individual must be a full-time student of Carleton. Students must have exhausted all other possible financial resources before applying to receive funds. The amount given is determined by the need and subject to the availability of the funds.
A student is only eligible to receive funding once per academic year. Emergency funds do not need to be repaid and are distributed on a case by case basis. Funds may take up to one week to process and are generally up to $250. Students cannot be reimbursed for money already spent.
The Dash Emergency Grant, which provides up to $1,000 for non-academic emergencies, is also available to students who meet certain criteria outlined by the grant and Carleton.
Please submit the form below to be considered for emergency funding. You will be contacted to meet with a staff member in the Dean of Students Office to discuss your circumstance and then they will consult with campus partners, including Student Financial Services.
This fund is not associated with the financial aid application process. Financial aid applicants who have special circumstances that relate directly to the financial aid process should contact Student Financial Services.
